In the 3 days that Trump was being treated for COVID-19 at Walter Reid Medical center by having access to all sorts of experimental treatments for COVID-19. A controversial treatment was an antibody cocktail, which had no proper indication of actually helping combat the coronavirus within a controlled experimental survey.

The following drugs that he had access to were steroids, remdesivir, zinc, vitamin D, aspirin, and anti-acid.

In an interview with a Health Care Insurance Broker, Rosa Aguilera, I’ve interviewed her about the level of fairness to access for the level of healthcare treatment that all Americans should have access to including the President. Here’s what she had to say in this audio recorded interview.

Blog: The 5 things that I’ve done is get b-roll sound from a simple visit to a 7–11 and utilize a lot of the background noises to my advantage to have some form of ambient sound for the beginning of my narration. With many challenges getting b-roll sound in the middle of the night, I’ve used what I could to get some sort of background noise for b-roll audio. What I’ve done for the interview was interview my mother, Rosa Aguilera and get her insight of how President Trump’s access to the most advance medical care and how his advantages of power in use of all of the COVID-19 treatments are considered to be unfair. Though there are many speculations that Doctors have used too many forms of treatment, the average American doesn’t have the opportunity to receive any form of these treatments besides, remdesivir, steroids, and an icu ventilator. Another thing that I implemented into this story was background music captured in my b-roll. I’ve also took the time to do a little more research on how to approach the interview in a more approachable way since this is a very political and touchy subject given that the general election is over 4 weeks away. I know this narrative arc story is still a work in progress, but I know I’ll be able to add more into the story once President Trump recovers and is able to witness the end results of the general election. It’s only a matter of time before this pandemic is over.
